I am a senior researcher in Laboratory of Gene Expression at Institute of Biotechnology of the Czech Academy of Sciences. I received PhD at University of Chemistry and Technology in Prague, Czech Republic and I worked as an intern in Denmark and Sweden. My long-term interest is analysis of single-cell gene expression using RNA sequencing and RT-qPCR. I am also active in method development and implementation (see our Two-tailed technology for analysis of short RNAs). My primary research focus is on glial cells and their role under pathophysiological conditions. I am involved in the projects focused on the analysis of experimental ischemic stroke and spinal cord injury, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis or Alexander disease. In addition to research, I enjoy training young students and learning new things. When not in lab, I love spending time with my wife, daughters and overactive dog, running in the mountains and occasionally partying with friends;)
